Very clean sites, the young man who takes care of the grounds works very hard and does a great job! However, the washrooms had some flaws, no soap in the men's washroom the whole two weeks we stayed, only soap in one container in the ladies room, their toilet tissue is the worst, it tears at each single sheet and I know that sounds silly, but the floor is littered with toilet tissue and it was frustrating. The pool closes officially at 6pm which was a bit stressful if you were trying to get back from outings in time for your kids to swim. However, they will keep it open till 8pm but after 6pm it can close at their discretion. I never understand that as the pool is such an important feature for families. Why limit it especially when paying $60 per night. Also, their miniature gold is $4 per person and my kids paid and left midway through as it was not the best. I don't think they should describe themselves as a resort as there was nothing going on the whole time we were there, but we could have missed it too. Also, the staff are friendly enough, but their signs are a tad bit sarcastic. Oh, and their pool is really lovely, large, clean and heated so that was nice! We did feel quite far from things even though we chose this as it was within proximity to beaches, cities, etc. The long country roads and many lights along the way made the travel seem longer. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This campground is heavily wooded (we were in the shade almost all day long), clean and well maintained. The sites feel a little cramped/crowded but that's because there are so many trees. We stayed in a 37' motorhome and it was a bit tight when driving and maneuvering through the park. The rate we paid ($41) is discounted due to the purchase of two Six Flags tickets. We chose a 50-amp pull-through with water but no sewer, since we were only staying three nights and could use the dump station on the way out. There are quite a few seasonal campers set up with decks/patios/etc. for the season. The free Wi-Fi was often unusably slow. Also, both AT&T and Verizon had very poor signals - we had to use our cell booster to get our hotspot working. We'll stay here again if we revisit Six Flags, but otherwise the non-discounted price ($60) would be pretty high for us for 50-amp full hookups. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We don't live far from this campground, so when we started camping 5 years ago, we scouted out this place. At the time, we were totally disgusted with the quality of the sites. With a bit of coaxing from a friend, we decided to book a site for July 4th weekend. Boy, we were pleasantly surprised! This campground is kept up nice, seasonal sites are very nice and hard to tell they are seasonals. They do need to trim some weeds on paths, though. The weather did not really cooperate to use the pool but it was a nice size and immaculate. Activities were fun and organized. Staff was always friendly and helpful. Our site (99) was a bit tight for my husband to back into due to the layout of the trees, but, once in, it was private and a good size. Bathrooms were cleaned daily. No golf carts allowed. Seasonals were friendly and polite, allowing anyone waiting first to actually "go first". My son with autism seemed to be accepted by everyone as well. One drawback is there is only one car allowed per site. Everyone else parks in the lot and sometimes the lots are full. We do plan on returning again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed at the Butterfly Camping Resort this past weekend in a Travel Trailer. The sites were clean and as level as can be expected. There was a picnic table and fire ring. The sites were free of leaves and other debris. All remaining leaves from the sites were blown into the surrounding areas. Everything was neat and clean on the grounds. The resort was very nice overall. The people working there could not have been more friendly. They had a big bonfire Saturday night, put out supplies to make smores, and had one of those chocolate fountains going. It was very nice of them to put that together for the campers. This is a family campground. There were lots of kids running around. And lots of dogs. So some barking was expected. We have a kid and a dog, so we fit in well there. They seemed to be strict about the quiet time from 10 PM to 8 AM, and with the speed limit of 5 mph around the campground. They also have a hard shutdown of midnight for all campfires. There were staff cruising around the grounds all the time, which is a good thing. Any of the seasonal sites were kept up very well. There were no old junk trailers at this campground. They have a bunch of nature trails surrounding the campground. And there is a small fishing pond on the property, plus small lake or bog right next to the property. They have a very nice little campground store with reasonable prices, and good firewood for sale. The roads going around the campground were all pressed gravel and well maintained. It was easy getting in an out of there. I only have a few constructive things to say. First, the bathrooms were clean, but they were very utilitarian. Blow dryers, and no paper towels. They were nice enough, but not warm and comfortable. Also, there was no dog park there. We like to have a place to let the dog loose to burn off some energy. And there were small recycling containers around, but no recycling dumpster where you take you garbage. They should add that. Overall this is a really nice campground with nice people. We had a good time there. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very clean campground. Bathrooms where nice and the activities where great. Well stocked store and a nice pool. We were there with our grand children and had a great time. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We've recently returned to camping here. The staff is very welcoming when we come, and was very accommodating for our site request. There's a small playground, large field and lots of shaded sites. The camping cabins are very nice too. They open very early in the season, and close pretty late as well, which is great! They have many themed weekends, and my kids love going for them! A fun place to stay! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is the second time we've stayed here. This is a very nice campground with a suitable playground and a nice looking pool. There's a fully stocked store and the sites are maintained nicely. The bathrooms were clean and accommodating. There is free Wi-Fi but the signal strength is non-existent. The park is pet-friendly, but there are so many dogs that the barking is nearly constant first thing in the morning until quiet time. We are dog people, but it got to be a little ridiculous. There was a nice fathers day breakfast on Sunday and we would stay here again due to the proximity to various places. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
First time at this resort. Very nice place. spotless. bathrooms were nice. Showers were so so, but according to other campers, the owners are constantly making improvements. Really had a wonderful time. Pool was beautiful, playgrounds for the kids were great. Rules were strictly enforced, no problems with noise or unruly people, even though it was a holiday weekend. Wi-Fi is free. I am getting used to being nickered and dimes for everything at campgrounds up and down the East coast, so that is a drawback, but try and find somewhere that is not the case anymore. There were a lot of seasonals, but they kept them separated from the other sites, and unlike other campgrounds there were no decks, etc. attached to the seasonals. I would not hesitate to go back to this campground. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
My site was clean, maintained and fairly level. I feel for the price they should give you the Wi-Fi for free instead of the rates they were asking. The price for fire wood was a lot compared to other campgrounds we visited. One of the employees who was driving around in a golf cart motioned me to slow down to the 5 MPH speed limit which was really difficult since I was doing 8, but later I saw him going faster than I was. The pool was very clean and well maintained. They say you can fish there but the lake is so clogged with lily pads it is impossible. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is an overpriced campground and when having guests visit, they charge $6.00 per person for a day pass. So if you have 3 or 4 people come to visit you at the park you are looking at a charge of 18-24 dollars! This is more than it costs a whole car full to do something like visit a national park. Staff is not helpful and in fact are rude and like to argue. Do not stay here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is our second stay at Butterfly and the owners are doing a great job! Each year making improvements and making this a great destination. The bathrooms are immaculate, showers laundry, pool..just great. They are getting strict on visitors and quite times etc., which we appreciate..making this a great place for families not for people looking to party. We will stay here again! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I am giving this a 3 only because the bathrooms were clean and the pool is nice. If not for that, I would have rated it lower. The attitude of the owners is awful! The seasonals are out of control and definitely make you feel uncomfortable. I will not be back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Our over-all experience was not a pleasant one. The bathrooms were clean and the pool was clean also, but that's as far as it goes. It was like staying in a very bad neighborhood. The seasonal people seem like they run the place and they are trashy people to say the least. There were a lot of funny looks and a lot of clicks hanging around at all times, including night time.There seemed to be a lot of drinking and bad language throughout the whole weekend. I did not feel safe with my family there. I would not recommend this place to a family. There are too many good campgrounds in the area to stay at this one. I do not expect to see this campground stay in business for long. They should be ashamed. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This was the first time at this park and most likely the last. First of all on the phone they were less then desirable, that should have been my first clue. The price for a campsite is for two adults and two kids, all others are extra. It's not like they have a lot of activities, if it rains, which it did, there is nothing. Check in is in the store so you have to wait in the line of kids buying candy and deal with a teenage cashier. When I asked for the activities list she said we only do things on weekends. Our site was nice enough, until it rained. In the morning we stepped out of our camper into three inches of water. We couldn't even sit outside. The campground was empty yet they chose to give us the lowest spot available so everything from the dirt road drained into our site. To top off the trip when we arrived home I spent an hour picking about one hundred pinhead size ticks off of my daughter. Not a relaxing vacation at all. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Butterfly is a smaller, clean, well laid out campground. It was wooded pretty well for privacy. The bathrooms and showers were very clean. The pool was immaculate and very large. We stayed Mon-Fri and had the campground virtually to ourselves. It was very quiet which we loved. 15 min to six flags, 25 min to the beach. The General store was well stocked and all employee's were very friendly and helpful. They should get rid of the mini golf as its in bad shape. We will stay again. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
We really enjoyed the campground. The pool and playground seem very nice, although we did not use them. The roads are fairly easy access, the trees are trimmed back nicely. Easy to get through with our B+ MH. One downfall is that the roads and sites are all dirt, which is somewhat messy. Our site was plenty big and there were good privacy shrubs between sites. Easy access to hook ups as well. We went to the beach towns for day trips, and that was an easy drive. Six Flags and Outlets are close by as well. We will come back to this campground. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The campground was clean and the staff were nice. The campground is sandy which was something I wasn't used to however, it really didn't present any problems except for more dirt in my camper. Maneuvering is a little tricky but you can manage. The miniature golf course is in disrepair and should be free to use. Hopefully the money they charge (not a lot, $2.00) will be used to fix it up. We stayed here to visit Great Adventure. I probably would stay here again, however I will look for a different campground first. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Great park, family friendly, friendly staff, clean and that movie screen was awesome. Had security keeping it family friendly at night, while still allowing fun. We had a great time and we shall return! We camped here in a Motorhome.
This CG would get higher marks except for a couple problems. Main problem is that the pool is only open till 6pm everyday! This is the only CG we've gone to that closes this necessary activity sooo early. Most wait till at least 8pm. Remember some of us can't get there on a Friday till about at least 6. The other problem is no soap in the bathrooms. I know its trivial but most of us (I assume) wash our hands after using the bathroom. This is a great filler campground and one of the best in NJ. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Be aware that you will be charged $5 per hour if you check-in before 3:00 PM. We arrived at noon and had to pay an extra $15 in addition to the nightly $47 rate. Big rig access to some of the sites is difficult due the large number of trees at the entrance to sites. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a "resort" in name only. It has seen its best days a long, long time ago. Mostly seasonal sites, poorly maintained roads, trash and old camper parts, awnings, covers, etc., left where they fell. Store stuffed with junk, crowded and un-organized. Saw only one or two other non-seasonal RV's. Had our choice of 5-6 different sights, chose the best of the bunch and had a tough time backing in between the trees, junk, and other obstacles. We could not get into another nearby campground and had to settle for this. Luckily we were staying with friends and only had to sleep here 2 nights out of 7. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This resort is the "last resort" and we had no other choices in the area. This was as close as we could get to McGuire Air Force Base, where my son is stationed. The sites were long, but nowhere near level. Lots and lots of sand and rocks. Picnic tables covered with mold. Everything was old and falling apart. The whole place looked like a junk yard for old RVs. They had lots of unfriendly rules. For example, if I wanted to have my military son and his wife over for dinner, the "resort" wanted to charge them $10 each to enter the park. It was so patriotic I wanted to puke. Every Wal-Mart parking lot I've ever stayed in beat this place, hands down. I'll never stay there again. I gave this place a rating of 2 only because the site was long enough and the hookups worked. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campsite had no curb appeal. Right off the bat it looked old and unkept. The staff was okay, not overly welcoming. The pool was nice. The playground was in need of a serious overhaul. Everything was OLD and needed replacement. The kiddie pool was filled in with sand and the play toys were so old that some of them had sharp edges that might produce injuries. Bathrooms were old and smelly, somewhat clean. The C/G did not have activities planned for Sunday. There were many trailers there that looked like they were left there to rot so it seemed like a dumping ground for old trailers. Some sites looked awful (messy and filthy) and it didn't seem to bother the staff because these particular sites have been like that for a long time. How do I know this... the tires of the camper were halfway sunk into the ground. It did not present a good appearance. I will not camp here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Scary place. Limited store, run-down appearance. We ended up driving home and not checking in. Pool looked clean and fairly nice, but everything else was horrible looking. Really needs a make-over...badly. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
My children had a great time at Indian Rock. They really enjoyed the pool which was clean and sparkling. We have camped here before and will camp here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
[ 9 / 10 ]
I stayed at indian rock for memorial day weekend. you can notice right away that the restrooms have been remodeled, along with the mini golf, lodge, and the pool looks great. It was very clean, the staff was so helpful with helping us find were we needed to go. w/e/s on most of the sites. There were alot of big rigs in there and we were only a couple of minutes from six flags. My family & I will be back at indian rock. We camped here in a Motorhome.
[ 2 / 10 ]
The toilets we leaking across the bathroom. The shower's were rusty. The place was generally broken down. At the front office broken trucks were parked on the grass and cars with no license plates were in the parking lot near the front door of the check-in building. Just scary. They run a haunted hay ride, it must be very scary. The clerk seemed more interested in making sure we knew what we couldn't do, than telling us about what we could do (for fun). We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
This park is mainly privately owned RV lots, with park model units ( they look like log cabins). There are a few RV lots, but most are in disrepair. The developer is presently in a legal battle with the HOA, thus all rents have to be paid to the County Sheriff. Our rate is based on a monthly rate. I would stay away from this park until legal issues are resolved. The wireless worked well; TV is very poor; the cable is just an old fashioned CATV. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Laurel Pond is a money making scam! We stayed here in our RV in one of their "Luxury" sites. The website shows beautiful, clean, well maintained sites. In reality you get a dirty, muddy site over grown with bushes. The "president" or "manager" moves you in, collects your money, and is never to be seen or heard from again until he wants more money. There has been a huge amount of problems with our stay at Laurel Pond: 1) Most importantly, the owner did not pay the electric bill for 3 months, therefore causing the office, wifi, and water well pump to shut down. Meaning we were without water for 2 days with no end in sight. The Health Department then came through and shut the campground down and ordered everyone to vacate or pay fines. Some of these people had just paid $1600.00 to stay in the lodge for a month and will not be refunded. We paid $585.00 to rent an RV site for a month and were told to leave with two weeks still left on our rental agreement. 2) The water is nasty! It is untreated well water and will ruin anything porcelain or plastic in your RV! It is a simple fix, but the owner refuses to remedy the situation. 3) The Sheriff's Department showed up with a Writ of Execution stating that the owner owed money, and a lien was placed on the property; therefore all those who are renting will now pay rent to the Sheriff's Department. Shortly after this was served, the owner came by and demanded that we pay him and not the sheriff which is illegal. He was hoping to be paid under the table. 4) There are zero amenities; everything is over grown and not taken care of at all! We did not even have a picnic table at our site which is pretty standard at even the most basic campgrounds. 5) Owner will not answer the phone, even in the event of an emergency on site. 6) Owner tries to intimidate you with legal mumbo jumbo that doesn't make any sense at all to get you to pay him cash instead of doing the legal thing. 7) The lodges are gross! The laundry (linens) is washed inside and hung out to dry, sometimes for weeks or days and placed on the beds with ticks, hair (human and pet) and other gross things on them. The lodges also stink like mold or trash. 8) The owner has horrible record keeping skills and "guesses" the meter readings. Some people were charged $400.00 for one month's electric from the owner's "best guess" at meter reading. We took pictures of ours and wrote it down and our bill was still wrong. I could go on and on, but these are the most important things you need to know. Do not stay here unless you like to give away money! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Run as fast as you can. They should not even be using the word "Resort" in the title of this place. The website is a total scam. The park doesn't look anything like it does online. Before arriving, we were actually excited about this campground from the website pictures and details. Once we arrived, although the office says open, no one is ever there. A few of the locals, mentioned the owners are going through some legal issues. Everything is overgrown, nothing is maintained or treated. The lake is a swamp and the nearby lakes are all empty. It is right down the street from Six Flags, and it seems quite a few kids live on the property and work at Six Flags during the day and party at night. Someone else told us to watch our credit card for unauthorized charges from the owner. Stay away! We camped here in a Motorhome.
We had no power, cable, or wi-fi at our site. The office sent someone to fix it. He was either drunk or on something. Never was fixed ,and he left his tools laying on the ground until the next morning. Had to sign a waiver about ticks and wild animals (a first for me). When we got to our site I could see why. Weeds taller then me all through the "resort". Dog had a tick within five minutes, and we found two inside our motorhome. No facilities of any kind, and the rates are outrageous for what you get. Find someplace else. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed at this park during the 4th of July. It is a run down trailer park more than an RV.Their are small children running around all day unsupervised with a lake and is very noisy all day and night. While we were there there was a car chase involving two drunks and one of them drove his truck into the lake. Cable did not work, water lines were full of air, bathrooms and showers were filthy, laundry room always flooded and machines not working.The worst was the geese every morning and the tons of crap they left at your campsite. We would not return if it was free. Would not recommend. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We drove through this camp ground. Lots of full time campers with some very old campers. The grounds were not kept up at all. Nice lake. Pot holes in the driveway area that you could lose a small car in. Talked to some locals and they said to stay away due to plenty of drugs and convicts. We camped here in a Tent.
This place is a full time campground which has the poor living there full time. The park will actually rent you a trailer to live in. While we were there we learned the town has been trying to close this place for years, due to problems with drug traffic and other crime. I live in town and used to buy propane there and dump, until we stayed there for a weekend on a shakedown trip before going out. Big mistake. Bypass this one! We camped here in a Truck Camper.
While we are new at camping, this appeared to be a trailer park (i.e. cheap place to live), NOT someplace you would want to go for a pleasant visit. The place was filthy (both the grounds and facilities), our "new to us" 1985 RV was probably the newest rig there; the clerk was very disorganized/disoriented (not knowing which sites were available or even where they were); we did NOT feel safe and could not let our two 12 year olds
"wander" far for safety purposes. We camped here in a camper.
We stayed here in a 42' RV. Friendly office staff. This served as an affordable base to take the train in from Hamilton Station for day-trips to NYC. Would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The park is about 1/2 mile from the paved road. The entry road and interior roads are not paved - they are sand and dirt. Most of the park is seasonal and most amenities are geared toward children. Seasonals have campfires all night so I can't open the windows. There are loud announcements every 2 hours on weekends to call kids to activities. There is no enforcement of their quiet hours. The laundry and restrooms (I inspected them) are average. Good Sam needs to get back here to re-evaluate this park. It's way overrated on all levels. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Price was based on Passport America.Stayed here overnight in a pull-through full hookup site. Campground is woods and gravel, with some grass on site. Very rustic. Pool was beautiful. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Very family oriented atmosphere. Bathrooms were not air-conditioned, and a little dirty, but the roads are dirt. This is a decent campground and we would stay here again. It is also about 8 miles off the NJ Turnpike which is convenient. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate is based on Passport America. This campground is rough and in bad shape. Restrooms were never cleaned the two days we were there. The roads were so bad going in and out that we had things falling everywhere. The site we were on was not level. I had three tires off the ground. Some of the staff was nice, others made us feel like we were a bother. They wanted to charge me extra for sewer hook up. I do not like to be negative, but we are in a lot of campgrounds across the country and couldn't wait to get out of this on. We will not go back even at half price. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a delightful RV resort located in the woods and next door to Six Flags. The office personnel are very helpful and friendly. They have a theme for every weekend and are decorated for Halloween right now. It is a quiet place and one we will recommend to our friends and we would stay here again. My Verizon MiFi works well. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
A lot of things must have changed since the previous reviewers. The staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful, the pool was clean and bright. The restrooms that I saw were clean and well-maintained. Each space in the area where I stayed was level and gravel, with water, electric and cable. The park has mini-golf, a playground and a big pool; and it is located on a nice little lake with boats available. There are a number of seasonal visitors in some areas of the park and they have some things stored outside their RVs which gives it a little tent city look. However, I have heard no noise from anyone, and everyone: overnighter and seasonal alike, seemed very pleasant. I observed no irritating or objectionable behavior at all. They accept Passport America on Sunday - Thursday nights, giving a 50% discount. I would absolutely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stay Away from this place! Owners were clueless about their own policies. Sites were small and poorly maintained. It felt like we were camping in a recently bulldozed construction site. The bathrooms are the worst I have been in out of all the campgrounds I have been to. The lake just looked dirty and some of the docks were falling into the lake. No separation between campsites so you get to know your neighbors. It was extremely overpriced at $44 a night plus $6 a night for each additional person. Each campsite was supposed to hold 5 people but when we arrived our site could hold one 2 person tent and the picnic table. If you go here it's your own fault! We camped here in a Tent.
This campground was a mud hole. There was no gravel and very big potholes filled with water. We intended to camp here for one night with our dogs. I would never stop here again or recommend it to anyone. Did they ever hear of the words "gravel" or "concrete"??? We left and asked for a refund (which they did give us). WalMart was far better. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice wooded setting, around a little lake. Could be, and possibly was a great family campground. However, it has turned into an absolute dump. Rutted, dusty roads, uneven sites, trashy long-term weekend camps with moldy oldies, sewer smell: you get the picture. Take a pass. We camped here in a Motorhome.
OMG! I COMPLETELY agree with the last 2 reviews on the condition of this campground. Saying it was a DUMP is putting it NICELY!!! Our first sign to turn around should have been the bumpy 2 mile dirt road where we had to drive literally 1 mph to get down. The potholes were huge and there was no way to avoid them since they were everywhere. Second sign to turn around was the VULGAR eating out of the dumpster when we pulled in. The office/store is disgusting: dust and dirt everywhere. The sites are basically sand and just disgusting. No sewer hookups but that didn't prevent the "residents" from just dumping on the ground. We were the only "visitors" there and I can see why. This place is a dumpy trailer park and that is putting it lightly. Whatever you do, avoid this place!!!! I have warned you. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This place personifies the description of a dump. Roads rutted, slimy, muddy, slick. Staff led me into trouble and caused damage to motorhome. NO COMPENSATION. Park (loosely) should be condemned by state as unusable and UNSAFE. Sewer smell is bad. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This place is a dump. The person who wrote the last review sounds like they worked there. This is nothing but a trailer park where people live all year round. The bathrooms are disgusting and the people that work there are less than desireable. They think nothing of doing construction work as you're camping and trying to enjoy your vacation. Advertise as a family campground, however, it seems to be a big party spot for young and middle aged adults. And as far as seasonals and regulars go (the partiers)the rules are never enforced, they turn blind eyes. WE WILL NEVER CAMP HERE AGAIN! (Oh, and I won't even get into the roads!) We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

Wether you like a busy activity filled day or rest and relaxation, this is the place for you. The staff is very helpful and will accommodate any reasonable request. The campground actually feels like a campground rather than a parking lot with trees like some of the other campgrounds in the area. If you like it quiet, then don't get a site anywhere near the pavilion. But if you like music and being in the middle of all the childrens activities and easy access to their huge swimming pool, then the pavilion area is the place for you. If you have a big rig they have plenty of room for you, just make sure you tell them in advance. The only cons here are there are no sewer hookups but pump outs are done during the week and there is a dumping station right by the exit. We had our family reunion there this weekend and they had Xmas in July and the kids loved it. We will definitely be going back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This place was a slum. The most disgusting campground I have ever seen. It was so bad that upon pulling in, looking around, we left and never looked back. Roads had ruts that were 2 feet deep in spots. Narrow, winding dirt roads that would be impossible to navigate with anything other than a very small camper. Playground had serious outdated, dangerous equipment, also broken and cracked Little Tykes equipment that could really hurt a kid. Mini golf was so old and run down, not worth playing. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Roads are poor. Lots of ruts. Directional signs not followed. Quiet time at this campground isn't until 11pm. Campground staff was OK upon check-in but did not respect quiet of others. One of the nights we were there, music started blaring (around 8p) and one of our family members finally got tired of listening to it and asked for the music to be turned down (around 9p) so that we could enjoy an enjoyable time with family and not be overtaken by the loud music. We were about a football field away and it was being played in a pavilion on the other side of the campground store. Staff just stated quiet time wasn't until 11pm, did nothing and told my family member to check with the DJ. Family member then went to the DJ to ask to please turn the music down some which a reply was given that she didn't know how to turn it down but funny how she was able to turn it up! Another thing is that there was no one in the pavilion listening to the music and the person who went to asked to turn down the music said it hurt his ears! The DJ did finally turn it down a little and it was finally shut down around 10:30p. If the campground doesn't respect the quiet time to those paying for their sites, they don't deserve our business. We won't be going back. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Although this campground was one week shy of their open season, it wasn't all that bad. Green pool, pine needles all over the miniature golf area and few or broken paddles for the boats. The store was full of dust but I liked my site which made it all work out and the kids were able to fish. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Poor dirt roads in need of serious repair, not a big rig friendly spot, 30 amps service, supposedly new owners. Fuse box is locked, so you have to call when you blow a fuse, can't turn off power before you hook/un hook. If you like dirty sandy, shady sites with lousy access then this is for you. The place was filthy, roads were narrow. I don't know how some of the people even got into their sites We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a good park, for the area. It is hard to find a decent park in the area (resort style). My main con here is the price and some things connected to the price ($59). I was pretty much forced by management to pay for 50 amp even though I have 30 amp, he said because I am using both ACs. I tried to explain that many RVs use 30 amp and run both ACs. Finally, I realized I was beating my head against a wall. Also, after you pay your high price, if you want to do laundry it is 2 bucks a pop, I feel this is high. The showers are pay showers. The bathroom area is tight with no AC, not that big a deal, but lets the bugs in since door always open. I also extended one more day to make it a full week and was not given the weekly rate. Also, there are many junky old rundown moldy trailers in here. I don't mind full timers at all, I almost am one, but wow, keep things in a semi state of clean/repair. The pros, #1 Big Sites! Nice Shade. Pretty clean. Better than average WIFI, but not great. We had a tent set up for the kids, so they let you do that, nice. Good pool area, would be nice if they had a hot tub for the price. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We have no idea how this campground got so many great reviews. Pros – woman in office is very, very nice. Now the cons – sites are tight – yes, they are wide, but not deep. Roads are tough to maneuver with a big rig as well. Sites are dirt, not grass. Sites are incredibly close together – so close that we are 5-feet from five different rigs – can’t believe this passes fire code. Lots of seasonals and their sites illustrate such. Lots of people very loud late into the evening – quiet hours do not start until 10:45. HUGE piles of bagged garbage in and around dumpsters that have not moved in days. Lots of rules – i.e. – no use of personal washers and dryers. Our favorite (note sarcasm) – dogs cannot be walked off ones site. What? Yes, that’s right. You can walk your dog in your dirt site, but not on any road. The owner offered that we can drive the ½ mile to her house, park, and walk the dog there, but seriously – we can’t even walk out the gate!?! When we asked why, we were told that there were too many “dog issues” and this is what her insurance company said to do. She wants to still be considered “dog friendly” since so many people travel with dogs, therefore they technically allow dogs, but you just can’t walk them in the campground. So basically, it’s a financial decision, as she’d have to turn away too many people who travel with their dogs. In three years of fulltiming, this is one of the few campgrounds that we would not stay in again – even if it wasn’t for their bizarre dog policy. Finally, a very “trailer park” feel, not campground. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The owners are very friendly and go out of their way to help make you feel welcome. The park is a quiet, family friendly campground close to lots of attractions. It is clean and well kept and I will definitely return. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We just bought our first trailer and decided on this campground because of its close proximity to our home. Staff was friendly. Clean restrooms. Thankfully, our neighbor was very helpful in helping us back in to our site. I still need much practice in this area. I mentioned that this was our first trip to the office staff and thought they’d send out a staff member to help with that, so this was a bit disappointing. The Wi-Fi was not bad, but couldn’t connect every time I tried. Cable TV only had 11 channels. Enjoyed a couple of the activities they hosted. Did not use the pool, but it appeared to be crystal clear. Site was level, with plenty of space. Campground is well maintained. Had a great time and will return here. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
First time visiting this campground. Staff was very friendly at first arrival, and the campground and facilities were very clean and organized. The site itself was a nice size and clean as well. Easy in and out with our 34' TT. We had a lot of rain this weekend and the rivers flowing through the campsites were pretty big and deep, however, they did drain out pretty good after the storms passed. My issue was the number of seasonal campers who thought of themselves as mightier than the transients. They felt it was okay to complain about our radio at 10:15 when quiet hours didn't start until 10:45, yet their dog was barking, yelping and running all over the place. The campground staff was also very one-sided in this regard. Our radio wasn't too loud, and others around us were fine with the volume. So I am just chalking this up to the individual who seemed to be really tight with the staff. Since the heavy rain fell all day, we couldn't enjoy the facilities as we would have normally done. The campground just opened and RC Track, however, they don't tell you electric cars only. Just an FYI. We will considering camping here again, but hopefully another site will be available. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground offered great amenities and activities; we enjoyed the dance with Santa a lot. A lot of seasonals that really seem to love their campsites. Nice wide sites, good location. The bathrooms could have been a bit better--lots of bugs and the showers didn't look great. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
One of my lower ratings; however, I do like the campground. The site I stayed on was roomy. Hoxie was the name of the site and a corner spot. What I didn't like about the campground was the lack of grass. The sites were very sandy but they were level. I received very little assistance in getting into my site. I had to ask for help because another motor home was hooked up to my electric / cable / water and sewer. I actually lucked out when they allowed me to move over to the corner site. I plan on going back, so don't think of this review as a reason to stay away. If you have children, I believe they will enjoy it. I saw many children seemingly having a good time. I brought my dog; however, you are not allowed to walk him off your site. This was a major inconvenience. Other than that, check this campground out. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Spent another weekend here, it was great. Place is spotless and staff is fun. Lots for the kids to do and they now have an R/C track. Boy those cars can fly. Took another family with us as Tip Tam is always a great way to introduce newbies to camping in NJ. Great fun, we will be back. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very clean and friendly. There are many activities for children. Access to campground is an electronically controlled gate, if you want to go in/out, it is a $20 deposit for a key card. The area I stayed in had very large spots, about 30ft on each side of me. Wi-Fi access throughout the park. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We just camped here and it was good; nothing to write home about but nothing terrible either. Others mentioned the dog policy. We brought our Shi tzu and he was on a lead at our site. There were two small dogs his size across the way and they were constantly off their leads and barking ALL THE TIME. The staff did tell them they needed to keep them on their site. There was some confusion amongst the staff as to what the boundaries of the site were, and staff parked us pinned between trees 30 feet from our hook ups. I finally went to the office for a new spot and a lovely woman came out and clarified the situation, and we were happy with the big site we had. We were at a large pull through site that was great we had a lot of space. Nothing negative to say, just a little pricey for us to be so close to home. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
After having to change my reservation from my own personal camper to a rental, I was very pleased. The staff was very friendly and helpful. My rental was clean and in nice condition. I saw a lot of other bad reviews on trip advisor. I don't know why. My experience here was pleasant. We stayed up past 10 on a Friday night: no one told us to put out our fire or to be quiet. But we were not a bunch of loud people. I would recommend this campground. My friends stayed in their own camper and had no bad experiences either. I had a nice 3 day weekend here. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Stayed here again for a short weekend trip to begin the season. A great place to let the kids ride bikes and be safe. Lots of activities the kids love and the staff is great! The one thing I noticed about this campground is how clean it is. Not a candy wrapper blowing in the wind as I see staff always picking up trash if the see it. Nice place, will be back next year. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A rate this a 5 because it is middle of the road. The rate we'd pay in May 2011 for full hook up is accurate at 52 per night. We chose to NOT stay here because of the pet policy this campground maintains. After reading a 2007 reviewer's experience of being told "NO DOGS can be off your campsite", I emailed to the campground to see if this was a misunderstanding. I received a reply in less than 24 hours stating, "yes this is true we allow dogs on your site but not around the park thank you." I know RVPR doesn't list "PET FRIENDLY", but lists only "pets allowed". Tip Tam allows pets, and if you have a small dog their restriction may be ok for you, I have two large dogs which need walking twice a day minimum; so we're not going to be visiting Tip Tam. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nothing but fun here. Nice family run campground! We stayed here with some friends who just bought a popup, their maiden voyage was right in our town. Pool and activities were lots of fun for the kids. Owners/staff are friendly and they check in to make sure there are no problems. We also liked the fact that everyone driving, crawls slowly as there are many kids on bikes. Felt very safe with the kids having a long "leash". Can't miss with this campground, give them a chance. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This CG continues to meet our expectations. We come here several times a year and are beginning to be thought of as seasonals!! My kids love all the activities offered and always bring a friend. All the sites are well shaded and roomy. We are given sites as requested, near the back of the CG. You can hear the Sat. night DJ throughout the park, but the music will stop promptly at 10PM. There are two pools that are lifeguard protected. No golf carts allowed except by the owners. Owners are friendly and come check to make sure the site is okay. We will continue to return here. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This was a well maintained campground; however, it was an older campground. We stayed during the week; so I can't comment on the activities provided. It is in an excellent location for traveling to and from Six Flags Great Adventure. It is about 30 minutes from PT Pleasant Beach. The staff was friendly. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a good place for a few days. The interior roads are all dirt. The pools were very well maintained and they have a lifeguard on duty. Very quiet at night. Lots of tent camping and seasonals, but all in all ok. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We have stayed here three times this year starting Memorial Day Weekend. Our sites were all large enough with two being quite nice. We don't use much in the way of facilities on weekend trips, but my daughter loves the pool. They do have activities every weekend, candy bar bingo, flea markets, dances and the like. Free wi-fi is a real plus for me. We will return here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The campsite that we were in was quite large and nicely shaded. There are a great deal of seasonals, but most of them are very friendly. We have been here several times,and my children have made some friends here. We did not get the site we requested, but I asked for a site further away from the activities because I have a young child, they were very accommodating. The quiet hour is strictly enforced, although the DJ plays until 10 PM. Quiet hours start at 11. There are plenty of activities for my kids to do and they usually attend all of them. We like to return here, especially on the holiday weekends as it is close by for us. Bathrooms and showers are kept clean, but I STILL have to pay a quarter to take a shower. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The staff was very friendly. The bathrooms were clean for a campground. There were a lot of activities for the kids. The only downfall was that the sites for the pop-up sites (electric, cable and water) were very close together and not shaded (partially due because the leaves haven't come on the trees yet). Overall experience was good! We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
We liked this park for the most part. Sites were level and well maintained. We went here in the pre-season and the owners were great. They did activities with the kids even though there were not many there. We went back in season and they were not the same. I suppose they were busier but sometimes they would just ignore you. Pool hours close at lunchtime (prime sun time) and the pool was way overcrowded. I would return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We have returned to this CG several times. The sites are small and close together but there are a lot of activities for the kids. Two playgrounds and two pools. My kids are busy all day! Showers are the only ones where I still need a quarter. Also, the showers have no curtains between shower and dressing area and no bench to sit on. And, I had to wait for the water to heat up. The owners are friendly and the seasonals are, for the most part, polite. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We spent three nights here. This is a nice, well kept and clean campground. Lots of sports opportunities and one of the best playgrounds for kids we've seen. Internet access (Wi-Fi)was good, with an occasional signal dropout. The campground seemed to be mostly seasonal and looks as if they've been there for years. Many had very nicely decorated sites. Camp store is small. The bad: If you do not have your own restrooms and want to use the campgrounds, be advised they only have one. Three showers stalls for an entire CG may be on the short supply side. We were in the back and it was quiet...the sites up front may be subject to road noise. Yes, we'd go back. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We camped Memorial Day Weekend. It was a last minute change of plans since gas is $4/gallon and we couldn't afford to go to VA Beach. We were pleasantly surprised. Our family loved this campground and we are going back in August. Although the sites are right on top of each other, everyone was friendly. Make sure you have an extension cord and a long hose because the hook-ups are far. Bring quarters for the showers. Even though there was only 1 bathroom they were clean and not crowded since most people have trailers. The DJ was great and the location was convenient to six flags and the beaches. The mini-golf was only $1. The staff was always accommodating. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
A large group of us went to Tip Tam for Mother's Day weekend. We have been camping as a group for several years and have been to numerous places. Well, we were very dissatisfied with Tip Tam. We rented 7 campsites, 2 cabins and 6 RV rentals. We had about 50 people, 21 were smaller children. We went to Tip Tam because of the website info. It seemed like a fun place. However, management was very unfriendly. They kept complaining about us being too noisy while we sat around our campfires talking amongst ourselves. (and before quiet time). They advertise pedal carts with a picture yet they had only one. Bring plenty of change for the showers, you'll need them just to wait for the hot water. Cabins are not heated (and it got cold at night), I don't think that's too comfortable. Very close to the road. We did have fun because of our group of friends but it would have been better at a nicer place. If you want to camp at a place that you can't talk, can't play music (at a normal volume) and have no activities, this is your campground. But if you want to have fun, go somewhere else. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
We had a real nice site at the end of a row, which had more room to "stretch" out in. The draw back was the sewer hook up was too far away and we couldn't back up the trailer any further because there was a tree in the way. Other than that, the pools were nice, the people were friendly and the campground clean. We will definitely stay there again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I camped here because it was close to a car "swap" meet in Englishtown and close to Great Adventure. They supposedly are a pet friendly campground but when we checked in they said that pets aren't allowed in the park. I took this as any public area which is understandable. When I had my dog on his leash right outside of my site the woman from the office rushed up to me in a golf cart and rudely said "I told you NO DOGS can be off your campsite." Apparently the whole campground to them is considered a "park." If it wasn't for it being Saturday already I would have packed up and left. The rest of the time this woman kept watching us no matter what we did. Be sure I have been telling everyone that I know this campground is not pet friendly as they advertise. Most people I know take their pets and appreciate the info. I will never go to this "park" again. One other thing is the sewer connection was so far away that even with a 20' hose it didn't reach without holding it. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a great place to camp with kids! There are planned activities all day long every day. Sites are on the small side, and not much privacy between sites but that is just a small set back with all the activites the place has to offer for kids. The store was not well stocked, but local stores were just a hop skip and a jump away and had better prices. Sites are a sandy dirt so a grass mat is a must! Really enjoyed our stay there We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
We camped here because we thought both of our boys were going to bring friends and they allow tents. The CG is basic. Site we had was Lilac and it was a good size and fairly easy to get into. Negative was that we could not reach the sewer connection because of placement. The store was stocked well, good activities on Sat & Sunday with a band and DJ. The owners were very nice. The big negative that dropped the score on this CG is that there is only 1 bath house for the entire CG. 3 showers and very tight stalls for you know what. If not for this, we would have rated it an 8. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This campground would have been fine if it hadn't been so expensive and called itself a resort. We camped here with four of our grandkids. The pools are nice and clean with a lifeguard, but they have tiny activity center combined with the store and no place for the kids to go if it's raining. There is no parking anywhere in the park. Not the store, pool, laundry. There were no activities at all although they did have a clown party on Saturday night which the kids liked. We picked this campground specifically because we thought if would have stuff to do if it rained. Okay campground but not a resort. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
